Blake Lively Calls Motherhood 'The Happiest Time' in Her Life

Blake Lively Calls Motherhood 'The Happiest Time' in Her Life

Blake Lively is all smiles on the brand new cover of People magazine.

Here’s what the 27-year-old actress and new mom had to share with the mag:

On having a baby: “I don’t feel like it’s a massive change. I do want to just enjoy this moment. But I also feel like my first child is going to be the oldest sibling to the next kid, and that may change with each and every year. I’m looking forward to how one baby influences the other, and to my family as a whole, to every single chapter.”

On expanding her Preserve brand: “So much of the inspiration came from my mom and my dad and my siblings. All the things I feel like I’m good at are thanks to my family, and they’re things we’re now embracing at Preserve: cooking, decorating, artistry. Family is at the heart of everything I do.”

On marriage and motherhood: This is the happiest time in my life, and I could say that every day. I often feel like, ‘I can’t believe I’m experiencing this.’”

    Oh People Mag.
    No new pics, No news of the baby’s gender, No date of birth, Old trite quotes cobbled together, and this is an EXCLUSIVE??

  • Courtney Puzzo

    a little quick don’t you think she’s only been a mom for a few weeks oh and another thing when she goes back to actual work the kid will have a nanny like most Hollywood kids do. besides she only looked the way she did while pregnant because she had a stylist and a trainer. the child didn’t ask to be born of famous parents so they don’t owe us any information

  • Courtney

    well said! as if her website thingy was a real job!! she surely has a few nannies lined up already!

  • Rainbow3000

    Oh that baby could have been ‘Leo DiCaprio Junior’. Sad, Leo let a great woman like Blake go. His loss.

  • LOL

    Mothers and wife milking motherhood and marriages.

  • happy666

    She’s just had a baby and she’s already thinking about siblings for this one. What a rabbit. “I dont feel like its a massive change” – Blade. Wtf?

  • happy666

    With all those nannies everyone could have 7 uneducated kids!

  • Tata

    I think this ‘interview’ is BS. The quote looks like something she or any other celeb will say along with
    “I am the happiest guy/girl in the world”

  • happy666

    She prefers paparazzi, magazines and glamour rather than her baby. What a selfish human being.

  • forrest gump

    so easy: DO IT AGAIN!!

  • jane

    in almost all of her interviews she talks about how she always dreamed of being in fashion and working as a stylist, so she has never had one and comes up with all her makeup/clothes/hair just by working with designers herself. that much seems to be accurate. she kinda strikes me as a control freak, and as someone who wouldn’t allow others to handle her stuff. perhaps why she likes martha stewart so much?

  • Delores Pauldo

    Leo didn’t want to settle down . And he didn’t want any kids yet. She rushed into this married and having a baby. When you don’t have a career going for you just lay around and do nothing that what happen. Her husband ryan rushed into it to. He just split from his and jumped into another relationship and didn’t wait. Rachel bilson did the same thing rushed into getting pregnant cause she thought it would put her in spot light and it didn’t. Flauted her pregnancy all the tabloids too. But at least Blake didn’t flaunt her pregnancy all the tabloids like Rachel did. Blake had something going for her while she was pregnant and afterwards. You don’t see Rachel bilson on the cover are people magazine saying anything about her baby or how vv its going do you? Jake Gyllenhaal didn’t lose out. And he was the better guy. He work. And leo just want to have and date her.

  • Nicola

    It is odd. I’ve never heard a first-time parent speak of their newborn only in relation to how one day he or she will become someone’s sibling. I’m hoping it’s an old quote taken out of context because, if not, she should slow down and enjoy this time with her child.

  • ell

    you keep saying this, but when was Jake ever with Rachel Bilson? maybe i missed something, but I don’t remember it. She’s been with that star wars dude for ages…

  • Rocky & Nelson

    What a dumb People magazine cover! I’m still waiting to find out the baby’s name. Obviously they couldn’t get the baby pics or Cameron’s wedding pics.

  • mandyz

    If Leighton ever gets pregnant, she would’ve never made her pregnancy a PR circus like Blake has. This is why I’ll always prefer Leighton – a talented actress, great singer, great Broadway actress, and very down to earth chill girl, no wonder her and Blake aren’t friends outside of Gossip Girl. I don’t know why Blake thinks she’s so famous, she isn’t talented at all and her looks are manufactured by plastic surgery and generic. She thinks she’s A-list just cause she dresses well and is married to Ryan Reynolds? I find it all so weird and pretentious.

  • Excellent

    I bet she has given (i.e. typed) this interiew bf the baby even was conceived and the “interview file” was put on hold at Ppl magazne until the kid is born – that’s why it sounds strange, bc the birth was unexpectadly early..

  • :)

    You’re pretentious. And judging by the fact that you like to trash talk celebrities in your free time, weird too. Was the plastic surgery comment really necessary? I mean, do you feel better about yourself now? Maybe you should sit down.

  • Jo

    I’m so happy Blake is close to her Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants co stars.

    She and Leighton have NOTHING to do with each other, and its stayed so since GG ended, but Leighton fans are still obsessed and angry over Blake or what she does .
    Even 2 years on!!

  • Tata

    I love their rage.
    I love that Blake makes them so angry.

  • mandyz

    How am I pretentious, just stating facts about someone that is a completely superficial entity in Hollywood. Blake has zero substance whatsoever. And yes I can comment while I have free time at work, nothing weird about that at all. The fact that you stan for somebody that isn’t even a remarkable celebrity shows how vapid you are so YOU are the weirdo. I don’t trash talk about all celebs first off, but I will state my opinion on somebody that doesn’t deserve merit in my eyes. And the generic blonde and plastic surgery comment is valid cause Blake would be nowhere today without her nose job and boob job, Leo DiCaprio wouldn’t have looked at her twice if she didn’t have surgery and dyed her hair blonde, and Harvey Weinstein wouldn’t have made her as overexposed as she is today if she didn’t refine and enhance her looks. Maybe YOU need to look up to better celebrities with actual talent and humility. I rest my case. If either of you idiots want to keep commenting, you’re wasting your breath. Sit down please :)

  • mandyz

    I’m not even a Leighton stan, and I never watched GG first off, I started appreciating Leighton’s work post GG and saw her play on Broadway, in which she is an genuine talent compared to Blake. And Jo, I’m pretty sure that if Leighton and Blake liked each other as people, they would be friends outside of work too but in the end they’re completely different girls with different lifestyles and personalities that don’t mesh outside of work. And Tata why are you cheering on somebody that isn’t even talented to begin with? Makes you look stupid and shallow if you love Superficial Blake.

  • Tata

    And it makes you look daft to tell me who to like or what to write according to your tastes or likes. And anyone who posts essays on gossip blogs, must be sad and stupid too.
    Stay mad then go sit down before calling people who disagree with you idiots *****.
